My favorite tour is the Authentic Morocco desert tours! We produced these incredible morocco tours based on my ten years of living in Morocco. Authentic Morocco brings you to Chefchaouen, Fes Medina, Sahara, Marrakech, and Essaouira, among my top 5 places to visit in Morocco. You can visit Morocco’s exclusive locations.

We began our tour at the Royal Palace’s Golden Gate. Later, we’ll see the wall that surrounds an impressive and old medina from a higher vantage point.

We’ll go to the “negros” village, which got its name from the slave trade they brought from Sudan. And after we chew, we’ll swap the 4 4 traction for the animal traction. The dromedaries will lead us into the sand dunes of the desert, where we will be able to see an unforgettable sunset. Tonight will be unique because, like the Berbers, we will sleep in nomadic tents (Jaimas) in the sand dunes. We’ll have a Berb dinner, music and a starry sky like you have never seen.
